NOTE: Advance purchase ends at 11 p.m. October 5. If available, walk-in tickets will be sold at the Museum on Saturday. 

Reynolda is partnering with the regionally syndicated 88.5 WFDD radio program Across the Blue Ridge to present this intimate live performance featuring Grammy Award-winning co-founder of the Carolina Chocolate Drops Dom Flemons; bluegrass legend Alice Gerrard; and Appalachian singer Kay Justice. Paul Brown, a former journalist with National Public Radio, award-winning musician, and host of Across the Blue Ridge, will host the concert with his wife and fellow musician Terri McMurray. Brown and McMurray will join the other performers in songs and stories to spotlight the significant historical, musical and cultural connections between the Dust Bowl West depicted by Lange’s acclaimed photographs and Appalachia from the Depression era forward. “Hard Times and Hope” will be recorded for future broadcast on Across the Blue Ridge.
